The Museum Industriekultur Wuppertal with the Engels-House, the Museum for Early Industrialization, Lime Kiln, Ribbon Weaving Museum and the Manuelskotten is an important and indispensable part of Wuppertal's cultural and educational landscape. It preserves, cultivates and presents the heritage of the industrial revolution, which still shapes the identity of the city and its citizens today. In 1995, a friends` association was founded to support the work of the Museum Industriekultur Wuppertal through numerous projects, in particular:
Regular association activities are the monthly lecture evenings on topics related to the museum. Support the Museum Industriekultur Wuppertal and become a member.
